I have wanted to try this technique for a while and took the opportunity to do them for the Watercolour demonstration I did last friday.
I realised recently that I love to do challenges – be they colour or sketch and it really gets my creativity going with the little challenge ‘suggestion’. So with this in mind I combined the watercolour rose technique with last week’s sketch from Stamping 411 – a fairly new blog to the stamping world with regular challenges and tutorials.
They have clean simple sketches and I love simple!
Here is my card for this challenge
The first time I saw this technique was on Patty Bennett’s Blog however they use shimmer cardstock which we dont have in our catalogue so I tried it with our lovely gloss cardstock and it really works a treat!
This technique is surprisingly very easy to do and all the ladies loved the outcome when they did it as the make n take last friday.The hardest part is having the patience of waiting for the roses to dry which takes about 20 minutes or so – Friday was such a gorgeous sunny day we popped the roses on the window sill in the sun and they dried in less than 20 minutes.
We did the make n take in two parts with me demonstrating different watercolour techniques in between which seemed to work well and then we finished off the card and I must say that these ladies made some very pretty roses and no two turned out the same even though they all had the same three colours in the re-inkers.
Hope you like this card and I’d love to show you how to make it so contact me today to book in for your watercolour demonstration!
